Maximize your productivity with Todoist
  • Todoist is a cloud-based task management app that can help you to boost your productivity and streamline your workflow so you can focus on the important things.


    Todoist allows users to create to-do lists, set deadlines and priorities, and track their progress. Also, it includes features like tags, notes, and sub-tasks that help you organize your tasks in a way that works for you. Using IFTTT with Todoist is a total game changer as it eliminates mundane and repetitive tasks so you can deliberately organize your work and life simultaneously!

    For example, you can transfer your iOS Calendar events to Todoist, making sure any important dates and events are in sync so you can easily keep track of your schedule and tasks without switching between apps to stay organized. Check out these super popular integrations!

  • Manage your schedule by syncing your Google Calendar with Todoist

    It can be inconvenient to monitor the two different parts of your life: work and life. If you’re going back and forth with checking your work meetings and project deadlines to outside commitments like appointments and family events, it can be hard to paint a clear image of how your day is going to look like. Luckily, IFTTT allows you to sync your Google Calendar with Todoist and can help you manage your schedule efficiently. It allows you to see all your tasks and appointments in one place, saving you time and ensuring that you don’t miss anything important.


    Additionally, you can create your own trigger with Todoist and Google Calendar. There are a variety of Todoist triggers you can choose from shown below, such as having a new completed task trigger every time a task is marked as completed in Todoist.


    Once you have selected your trigger and connect your Todoist account, add Google Calendar as your action where you can either add a quick event or a detailed event. You’ll be able to select which calendar you want to connect to and there you have it!


    Note that you can also select Google Calendar as your trigger and Todoist as your action. It’s up to you on whether you want to sync your tasks and events from your Google Calendar to Todoist or vice versa. Let’s take a look:


    Now that you've set up the sync between Google Calendar and Todoist, it's time to put it to use. A way to maximize your productivity is to use different-colored labels for your tasks and events. This way, you can quickly visualize which tasks are related to which events and plan your day accordingly. You can also use Todoist's "priority level" feature to assign a level of urgency to your tasks, helping you prioritize what needs to be done first.

  • Motivate yourself to stay productive

    We have talked about increasing your work productivity, but how you compensate yourself for the work you do is even more important. Acknowledging your efforts and achievements is the key to keeping yourself moving forward, overcoming procrastination, and maintaining the momentum towards achieving your goal. By rewarding yourself regularly, you’re taking a positive step forward towards creating a habit of productivity and recognize that our genuine effort will always produce positive results.

    With our Todoist integrations, you can track your progress and reward yourself when you complete tasks through motivation to stay productive. You can integrate Todoist with Qapital, where every time you check a task off your list, save toward a vacation. Each time you complete a task, you’ll get a little closer to your dream vacation so, keep going! We also have another integration with Todoist and Qapital where you can save towards something indulgent or fun every time you complete a task.
